Hairy Lip Fern

Description

Cheilanthes lanosa, the hairy lip fern, is one of the easier of the challenging xerics for the experimental gardener. A US native it can be found in scattered rocky outcrops from the Midwestern states eastward. With its hairy attributes the 6 to 12 inch evergreen fronds have an olive to bluish cast and stand in upright gradually spreading clusters. Being drought tolerant it is a choice selection for a lean well drained site in the rock garden. Try grouping it with like-minded ferns at the base of a rock or two or in a container. This is suitable for bright spots in gardens from Zone 5.
